I AM loved...

Ever have one of those days or weeks were you just feel lonely and unloved... obviously if you really think about it you know you are loved but you kinda just could use some reminding of it.... well I am definitely having one of those weeks but yesterday I received a little something that made me feel oh so loved.

Side note : I have the best sister in the world and she happens to be my best friend also. My brother and my sister and I are all 16 months apart (I am the oldest, then my sister and my brother is the baby) and we have always been very close and still remain close to this day although not as close as I wish we were - it just seems easier when your a kid eh. My sister and I haven't lived in the same town since I graduated high school and I miss her - although I talk to her pretty much everyday I long for us to live close to do lunch dates or go for coffee together but I look forward to the weekends that she can get away from Sarnia and come visit!!

So yesterday was a special day for my cousin and her husband as they had their baby and I am so happy for them don't get me wrong but oh the pain in my heart as I wish so much that it was me having that baby. God kept bringing to my mind yesterday "in My time Kate, in My time" and that may mean this year or it might mean in a few years or it might mean me never carrying and birthing kids of my own but I know whatever it means it will be the best for me because it will be His will. So I was feeling pretty "blue" yesterday and all of a sudden I get a bouquet of flowers delivered to me at work and they were GORGEOUS... so I thought hmmm are they from my husband because he left me flowers at home with the sweetest card ever on Monday before he left for the week so I opened the card and they were from my SISTER!!! I literally had tears in my eyes because not only where they so beautiful but I had prayed and asked Jesus to send me a little something to cheer my day up and I had no idea how He was going to answer whether it be in the form of a call, or a text, an email or FLOWERS!! I love flowers so much but I love even more getting given flowers and not just by anyone but my best friend who happens to be my sister. So I just have to brag about my flowers and you may notice a theme with them - yes daisy's happen to be my favorite flower and I just love the colours both my sister and my husband choose...

from my sister - yes the card reads "because I love you from the better sister ha ha"

from my husband

Even though I have a really nice camera my picture taking skills aren't great so my photos really don't do these beautiful flowers justice but they are GORGEOUS and every time I look at them I feel so warm and fuzzy knowing I am loved. So I encourage you today that if your feeling lonely and needing a little loving, YOU ARE LOVED - believe me and I also challenge you to do something for someone today to show them that you love them because you don't know how much they need to hear it and you will be surprised how good you will feel after you do it.

Oh one more thing - I am soooo happy Jillian is the next bachelorette - at least one good thing came out of this season's disappointing bachelor. Can't wait to see if she finds true love in May...


  1. yay for flowers! They always brighten my day too :)

    I often have this verse come to mind when I am down in the dumps about babies "For I KNOW the plans I have for you declares the Lord..." Doesn't make the emptiness disappear, but it does remind me that He's got it all under control.

    Hope your weekend is blessed :)

  2. Just wanted to say I love your blog. I became of a follower of yours and looking forward to keeping up with you. Thanks for reminding me that I’m loved :o) Have an awesome day!!
